Terming the students as future of the country and teachers as builders of the society and nation, he said purity of thoughts of individuals is essential for a healthy and harmonious society.
He said it is important that our children get the right education and proper guidance not only for rising in their educational and job prospects but also to emerge out as responsible citizens of this country. He emphasized the overall growth of the children and students to shape them up to the present and future challenges in the life, to judge and differentiate between right and wrong in every sphere of life.
